Eric and I were privileged to spend last weekend among friends in Historic Boulder City, Nevada. Boulder City was built to house the workers who built the Hoover Dam, also known as the Boulder Dam.
Either way, let's just call it what it is: The Dam City. (This is where the fun begins...)
And, of course, we went to the fabulous show playing at the Dam Theatre, which is owned by our friends, Amy and Desi Arnaz, Jr.
Here's the lovely Miss Amy busy with the decoration of the Dam window. ;-)
We ate our fill at the Dam Candy Store (aka Grandma Daisy's) The homemade dipping caramel was to die for.
In the Dam Hotel is the Dam Museum which tells about the building of the actual Dam, one of the Seven Civil Engineering Wonders of the Modern World.
We even got to see the Dam Sheep.
Me: "So, what is there to do here in the Dam City (=D) on a Sunday afternoon?"
Local: "You could go see the Mountain Sheep come down to graze."
The grazing Dam Sheep were pretty amazing after all. Who knew?
Our stay in Boulder City was relaxing and delightful. It is charming and welcoming in that small-town-America way. (Thanks, Amy and Desi!)
We picked up a souvenir for our son:
And next time....
We may have to actually go out and visit the Dam itself.
We hear it's a Darn Big Dam. ;-)
(I crack myself up.)
